Heart Health and High Blood Pressure Prevention

When it comes to taking care of your heart, choosing whole grains whenever possible makes big impacts on health. Whole grains contain the entire grain –the bran, germ and endosperm – so you benefit from the entire nutritional package those foods provide.

For example, whole grains tend to provide a good source of protective dietary fiber, unlike their refined counterparts. The American Heart Association® notes dietary fiber can help improve blood cholesterol levels and lower risk for diseases like heart attack and stroke.

To start, make easy swaps like replacing white bread with 100% wheat bread, white rice with wild rice and traditional pancake mix with Kodiak Cakes® Power Cakes® Buttermilk Flapjack & Waffle Mix. Made with 100% whole grain wheat and oat flours, Kodiak Cakes® packs an impressive 5 grams fiber per serving. Even better, each serving provides 14 grams protein to provide a balanced, energizing and delicious start to the day.
